Operation Shower is a non-profit volunteering project aimed at enhancing the status of military families. Through this project concerted efforts to help military families are taken. Operating Shower has an interesting concept; providing baby showers to military families who are currently facing situations of deployment.
By providing baby showers this project attempts to spread love, mirth, and happiness. The concept of Operation Shower is simple. Provide and coordinate baby showers for expectant mothers. Through programs like ‘Shower in a Box’ pregnant moms of military personnel can get themselves heart-warming baby showers.
Now you might be wondering what a baby shower is? A baby shower is a celebration of a pending childbirth. The celebration is held by carrying out some gift-presenting to the pregnant moms. By arranging a party, pregnancy moms are felicitated and honored with gifts. Here the ‘shower’ has nothing to do with having a bath. Rather, it is used in the context of showering gifts for pending childbirths. This concept of baby showering is prevalent in India, United States, and Canada. It is soon catching up in other countries.
Every year, Operation Shower mobilizes gifts from people for pregnant women of military personnel who are on deployment. Lots of women benefit from the tens and hundreds of gift-presents. The gifts may be baby clothing, baby food, and anything that will benefit the baby and the mother.
Operation Shower has seen amazing sponsorships from people. Lots of donations are made every day from all across the country and the world. As a volunteer you can contribute to Operation Shower by donating or hosting a party. You can even become a sponsor, and fund Operation Shower’s various baby showering activities.
After gathering all the gifts, presents, and donations, moms-to-be are selected from the different departments of the military, and gifts presented to them. Operating Shower is indeed a great way for people to give back to military families. Baby showering is one of the ways to do that.
